Stay Cool

SUMMER IS HERE!! And as the temperatures rise you will need a handy list of fun spots to cool off and get your chill on. Check out this list of local favorites:

HEAD FOR A SWIM | Lake Temescal and Lake Anza in Tilden Park have lifeguards on duty 11-6 daily throughout the summer with park access for $3.50 or less per person.

ICE CREAM | Fenton's is the obvious Oakland institution but my family and I love to stroll up to Curbside Creamery to keep it super local!

TIKI BARS | On those nights where you are really feeling tropical, cool off at Kona Club or Trader Vic's, home of the original mai tai!

And if you are looking for even more fun and unexpected ways to cool off, SHOOT ME AN EMAIL OR TEXT and I will send you three of my super secret summer spots!

Spring is Springing!!

SPRING IS SPRINGING!!! And with that comes some basic home maintenance items to keep your home as good as new:

1) GET THOSE WINDOWS CLEANED inside and out. Give me a shout if you would like a vendor recommendation!

2) SERVICE HVAC UNITS. Change your air filters!

3) CLEAN YOUR GUTTERS of debris and check that the downspouts are pointed away from you house.

4) CHECK SIDEWALKS AND WALKWAYS for uneven concrete and pavers. During the wet months pavers may shift and create a tripping hazard.

5) TEST YOUR SMOKE AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS and insert new batteries if necessary.

6) CLEAN YOUR GRILL and get ready for the beautiful Bay Area summer weather and barbecue season!

Give me a call or text me today if you need a vendor referal!
